You know normally I don’t do this but this fucking idiot will not leave me alone. He texted me as a wrong number one day and I told him that and he STILL harasses me, before you sent me shit about blocking the number and yes I’ve tried that BUT because my phone is jailbroken it glitches it out so I cannot. I’m putting his number on blast because I’ve been telling this asshole to fuck off for over a month now. I’m sick of it! I get wore texts than these! He sends me more than 20 texts just in 5 minutes and when I don’t text him all day you can imagine. I’m fucking over it! Hers his damn number. And his name is Steve btw.
Signal boost like a motherfucker. You all know what to do…
Do your worst babies
The fact that he can’t even seem to put together a full, proper, grammatically correct sentence is also a shame. Ew.
why do black people use you in the wrong context? such is "you ugly" instead of "you're ugly" I know u guys can differentiate, it's a nuisance
you a bitch
It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.
So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.
What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.
In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.
Michael Brown’s dad before the burial.
The emotion and all of the sweat…. shit is hard to look at, even if its only a picture
I didn’t want to reblog this because it’s hard to look at, but people SHOULD see it.
We SHOULD see a father mourning his teenage son.
We SHOULD see how a killing like Mike’s can take a toll on not only a community, but a family.
It’s as easy for young black men to become martyrs as it is for them to become victims. They can never just be humans.
We can never just be.
wow first of all how do you even touch a bird
ive watched this video an unimaginable amount of times
